Delay/stop mentural cycle

Hello, my doctor has prescribed me birth control in the past. I have requested to fill them again. I'm not sexually active, but would like to stop my cycle for vacation that is 9/2. My cycle just ended on Sunday 8/6. My cycle app say it's scheduled to come again on 8/31. I would like to delay it to start after I return from my trip which is 9/6. How should I take the BC to delay my menstrual cycle? Any suggestions are helpful.

You just continue it.Omit the placebo white pills if any.If that is a 21 pills pack; continue the pills from the next pack without any break.This will serve your purpose.
